Pakistan Foreign Office summons Indian Deputy High Commissioner

ISLAMABAD - The Foreign Office Friday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh and strong protest was launched over the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on February 4, in Nezapir, Nikial and Karela Sectors, resulting in the martyrdom of two innocent civilians, while injuring seven others, including two children.

Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal in his weekly media briefing said the Indian forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) were continuously targeting the civilian population with heavy mortars and automatic weapons.

The Indian forces have carried out more than 190 ceasefire violations along the LoC and he WB so far in 2018, resulting in the martyrdom of 13 innocent civilians, while injuring 65 others.

The Indian occupation forces killed two Kashmiris including Rayees Ahmad Ganie, 19-year old and Musharraf Fayaz ,10-year old, in Shopian in occupied Kashmir, while a young girl Samaya Jan, who has received bullets fired by Indian forces is struggling for life in a hospital in Srinagar, he said.

Miseries of the people in occupied Kashmir have increased day by day as Indian occupation forces in Pulwama, Shopian, Islamabad, Kulgam, Srinagar, Baramulla, Kupwara, and Bandipore districts continue to terrorize by illegal house searches, damaging properties and beating the people without any provocation in day and at night, he said.

“We highly condemn Indian atrocities and brutal acts and call upon world human rights defenders to stand up for Kashmiris in IoK”, Dr Faisal said. - APP
